We have looked for a winter residence in the Coachella Valley for several years and knew exactly what we wanted; south facing, no cart path near us, no slice zone for golf balls, water on the course in front of us, wide or double fairway, mountain view and in one of the clubs we preferred. We first met Elaine several years ago during our search (discovered her over the internet). She listened to what we were looking for and when we came down to the Valley she met us and showed us quite a number of properties at both ends or our price range but we didn’t find that perfect fit. She gave us an honest assessment of the marketplace and did not push us in any way. We waited. Elaine kept in touch and during April of this year she called and said she felt the market was right for us now and may have the perfect place based on our wish list. We looked at several possibilities and narrowed our search down UNTIL she showed us the one she thought could be perfect for us. Elaine was right. We have now closed on our wonderful new home at the Citrus Club in La Quinta and are very excited about it. From the very beginning and all through the process to closing, Elaine’s service to us has been superb. We were picky—she was precise. We wanted to take enough time to make sure we found just the right place—she was patient. We knew what we wanted—she found it. We sincerely give Elaine Stewart our highest recommendation. She is a pleasure to work with. - Jerry and Dr. Ellen Jaeger
We recently enjoyed the services of Elaine Stewart and her Remax team, and wish to add this entirely unsolicited testimonial. Elaine is warm, personable, and highly knowledgeable about real estate in the desert cities. We spent hours with her in a search for an attractive and affordable winter home, and saw a number of possible places. We can report that the hours spent on scrutinizing MLS listings from afar were only partly helpful; the time we spent with Elaine was the key. She was especially helpful as we prepared our offer, and in the period of back-and-forth negotiation with the previous owner. New owners will face a variety of issues and puzzles before and just after they take possession. This may be particularly true of those, like us, from Canada. Elaine was a great source of information about painters, tilers, cleaners, condo insurance, and many other services. It seems to us that she knows everyone from Indio to North Palm Springs and, without exception, her recommendations proved accurate and most satisfactory to us. We can recommend Elaine Stewart without reservation - Allan and Clara Robbins, Victoria, BC
Elaine was very helpful to us for our home purchase in the desert. She knew the inventory of properties very well and was able to adjust when our needs changed. She was always very quick to respond to our calls and emails. We are very happy with our purchase, because of Elaine. - Doug & Cheryl G.
Cory Alan recently acted as my buyer's agent for the purchase of two properties in Palm Springs. I was very pleased with his diligence and level of expertise. I tried to give Cory a stellar recommendation on Zillow, but I could not get the program to cooperate with me. Each time I tried to submit something I would get very odd (to me) screens that said things like "too many server re-directs" or "Security Load Failure". I tried several days later with same results. I am going to copy my evaluation and submit it to you so that at least YOU know that I gave Cory an excellent recommendation. On the Zillow page I had given Cory 5 stars in each category asked. Thank you... - JACK BOOKWALTER - Portland, OR
As a 1st-time home buyer in the US Anja and I both were totally unprepared for the rigors of searching viewing and deciding on a house and Cory really understood our wants and needs as a family. He not only heard what we were looking for he LISTENED! As our search narrowed Cory truly picked up on what we as a family wanted and guided us right to our dream house! But more than just finding us a home Cory continued and stayed right with us really going all out as we were shuffling thru the myriad of documents faxes emails and the like from various agencies. We really couldn't have done better with any other agent--I've talked to my office associates about Cory's actions and they also tell me we were lucky to get him. Cory Alan is more than a real estate agent he's a wonderful man who we still keep in touch with as our family settles into our new life in our new home. Thanks so much Cory! - Edward D. Stephens
